I remember about 4 years ago the strain of influenza going around was extremely virulent and was killing young people in the prime of their life. Most of the MD's were going around the hospital with masks on. I took care of a 24 year old mother who came in the hospital (walked in) and was dead 36 hours later. Just virulent stuff! We were calling it Flumonia. The national news picked up on it some but they just didn't relay the seriousness in their reporting.
